Jessa Duggar & Ben Seewald Are Already Talking Kids

jessa duggar ben seewald

Well, they sure haven't wasted any time. Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald may have just gotten engaged, but the soon-to-be-married couple already has babies on the brain. According to Jessa, she and her fiance want to have a big family, just like her parents did.

Plus, Duggar and Seewald are already thinking about adoption. In case you didn't already know, Jessa is one of 19 children, and her husband-to-be is the oldest of seven. And the pair will definitely follow suit and plan on having a large Duggar-Seewald clan of their own.

Said Duggar:

We are talking about our goals and even just like the future, with family, we both talked about adoptions. We are open to having children and both want to adopt, too.

Love that!

As for the number of kids they'll have? Just like her parents and her sister, Jill, they'll leave that part "up to God." But at least Jessa and Ben are open to different methods.

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar had all 19 of their kids the good ol' fashioned way and have faced backlash for their decision to continue to conceive, even after multiple medical complications. It's known that the more pregnancies a woman has, the higher her risk of pregnancy-related death.

But it looks like Jessa is realistic about her family plans. And it's nice to see that she's thinking about adoption right from the start rather than as an "in case we can't get pregnant" scenario. Because it doesn't have to be! Starting out with plans to adopt is a wonderful way to plan for family.

Either way, it looks like the Duggar family will definitely expand.

What do you think of Jessa and Ben's family plans?

Good. Every engaged couple should have that conversation prior to marriage. Not seeing the issue or story here.

"They are already talking about kids" umm when are you suppose to talk about kids? I would assume that it had been I'm discussion a long time ago. If he believed in using birth control and she didn't then I would think that would have stopped them from courting. If your goals are not the same and you can't agree on how to be married and children there really isn't a need to keep dating because it just be settling.

Lovely couple!

Every couple should have the conversation about future children before they get married. I don't think that's jumping into anything at all. Plus, for a family who doesn't believe in contraception, the smart thing is to have that discussion up front to avoid problems later on. Kudos to them for being mature enough to discuss lots of things before they get married!

Good for them! My husband & I talked about whether or not we both wanted children before we met in person & before our first date. Why pursue a relationship with someone if you don't want the same things? It only makes sense to talk about what you want out of the relationship, what you want to give to it, what you goals are. More couples need to seriously talk more & not let hormones & lust get in the way.

That's great, I don't expect any less from the girls, that's what they are raised to do! Breed and be subservients to their men! I would not expect anything less!!

I think its great they are talking about kids and about adopting.

That conversation is very important no matter if you come from a big family or not. As for adoption, I think it would be a great opportunity to add some diversity in the family.

We were talking about kids when we had only been dating for two weeks, but a couple days later he asked me to marry him too.  Lastly I trusted him so much I went off my mood stabilizers and depression medication because he said he need to see how I was without them because I can't take them while pregnant.  Here I am 10 years later, still off the medication and still with my husband!  I have my bad days but we handle them one day at a time.
